HyperExecute Deployment on Amazon Marketplace


One of the biggest challenges developers and testers face is the speed of test execution and the lack of smart test orchestration. But, so far, customers had only two options—depend on traditional cloud-based grids that haven't really innovated to fulfill present demands or build their own in-house infrastructure.

Existing test execution solutions are inherently slow because of lots of network hops that happen during each test, triggered test scenarios are first sent to the automation hub, which in turn are scheduled to run on the best-suited automation node resulting in unnecessary latency. Also, multiple network hops with separated components result in increased test flakiness.

On the other hand, local setups don't have the smart features that can be offered on the cloud. It has always been a trade-off for customers.

HyperExecute by LambdaTest


HyperExecute by LambdaTest is a lightning-quick intelligent end-to-end test execution and orchestration platform that is framework and language-agnostic. It is up to 70% faster than any cloud-based test execution grid. HyperExecute reduces developer friction and interrupts and ultimately helps businesses release features/products quicker.

  • HyperExecute achieves in-house-like performance by merging all the components into a single execution environment, thereby ensuring all the components 'talk' to each other just like they do in a local network.

  • High-performing, highly scalable, and with intelligent features, the platform takes care of executing your tests in the least time possible so that you can focus on crafting your test cases. With smart features such as auto-grouping, auto-retry, and fail-fast mechanisms, HyperExecute takes away all the pain to run tests leaving the developers/testers to focus on other important tasks.

  • Through a simple YAML file, HyperExecute allows one to group and distribute tests intelligently across runner environments. This intelligent test orchestration takes into account past test run data, and automatically reorders the test runs to surface failures faster and thus cuts down developer feedback time.

  • HyperExecute ensures that all test execution data is available on a single platform, thereby allowing teams to truly analyze the quality of their builds through insightful automatic reports generated for each build run.

HyperExecute's other noteworthy features include artifacts management, automatic tunnel management, customizable test environments, dependency caching, etc.

Data Processing and Storing by LambdaTest


LambdaTest processes and stores two categories of data from its Customers while providing LambdaTest Services.

  1. LambdaTest Account data: The first category of data is any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) other than 'Test execution data' provided by the Customer during the Services. This includes PII related to employees, users, or customer personnel. We refer to this data as 'LambdaTest Account data.' It may include names, email addresses, and contact numbers.

  2. Test execution data: The second category of data is any information, including PII, that is stored, processed, or transmitted via the LambdaTest platform by, or on behalf of, our Customers. We refer to this data as 'Test execution data.'

The Test execution data consists of the data that our Customers upload to our Platform or that our Platform accesses during the testing of applications. It may include reports, tests, networks, browser process logs, other artifacts, authentication information, licensing information, and test execution metadata (e.g., test status, duration, name, browsing sessions, search history), as well as other information that Customers may provide during testing.

In general, 'Test execution data' refers to data that is stored or processed for the delivery of the Services we provide as a data processor. This data may also include backup storage. It is important to note that 'Test execution data' does not necessarily contain any identifiable PII or sensitive data regarding customer personnel, customers, end-users, or other third parties.

Please note that LambdaTest does not collect, nor does it require, any identifiable PII or sensitive data by default for its functioning.

From a privacy perspective, the customer is considered the controller of Test execution data, while LambdaTest acts as a processor. This means that throughout the time a customer subscribes to services with LambdaTest, the Customer retains ownership of and control over the Test execution data in their account.

'Test execution data' encompasses data stored for the delivery of services we provide as a data processor, including data stored for backup purposes.

Data to be Processed by LambdaTest while using the HyperExecute Platform

The following data will be processed by LambdaTest when using the HyperExecute Platform:

  • Selenium test data: This includes selenium logs, Selenium video logs, Selenium test network logs captured from browsers, and selenium process logs. These will be stored on LambdaTest.

  • LambdaTest authentication and Licensing information: Authentication and licensing information related to LambdaTest will be stored on LambdaTest's platform to control the test concurrency.

  • Web browsers and selenium drivers: LambdaTest curates and stores publicly available web browsers and selenium drivers in their public storage. The HyperExecute environment for customers will regularly download these web browsers and selenium drivers from LambdaTest's public storage.

  • Test execution metadata: Metadata related to test execution, such as test status, duration, and name, will be stored on LambdaTest's servers. This data is used to power dashboards for customers, providing insights into test execution.

  • Alerts from HyperExecute services: HyperExecute services running inside the customer's environment may send alerts to LambdaTest in case of failures. These alerts will not contain any critical or sensitive details. The data sent will include information such as error type, service, and time. This data is used to provide prompt technical support to the customer.

  • Software updates: LambdaTest will roll out frequent software updates for the HyperExecute Platform. Customers can apply these updates at their convenience.

  • Customer's critical data: All critical data, including test scripts, terminal logs, and test dependencies, will remain within the customer's environment and will not leave their perimeter. LambdaTest does not process or store this data.

Please note that LambdaTest prioritizes data privacy and security and ensures that sensitive customer data remains protected and within the customer's control.

Data Deletion Process

LambdaTest follows the following data deletion process:

  1. All test execution data from the executed virtual machines (VMs) is deleted as soon as the test is completed. This means that each time a test is run, a new clean and sanitized machine is used, and the VM where the test was executed is deleted immediately after the test ends.

  2. LambdaTest stores encrypted test execution result data, including logs, videos, and screenshots, that are generated during test runs on LambdaTest's platform. By default, this data is retained for 60 days.

  3. Customers have the ability to request the deletion of all data corresponding to a person. This can be done by contacting LambdaTest via email and explicitly requesting the deletion. LambdaTest aims to process such requests within a turnaround time of 48 hours.

LambdaTest prioritizes data privacy and provides mechanisms for data deletion to ensure compliance with data protection regulations and to meet customer requirements.
